Cash-Strapped? Mama June Shannon Hocks Her Diamond Ring at Georgia Pawn Shop

“I’d hawk Geno’s kidneys if I could…but ain’t nobody want those things!”

Mama June Shannon seems to be desperate for cash these days; so much, in fact, that she reportedly resorted to selling her diamond ring at a pawn shop for well under what it’s worth.

TMZ reported that the Mama June: From Not to Hot star— who has been making her way through Georgia with her beau Geno Doak, trashing hotel rooms and whatnot— resurfaced at a pawn shop in Stockbridge, George, last week. June apparently wanted to hawk her diamond ring quickly, as she reportedly took an extremely low offer for the ring.

The pawn shop employee reportedly offered her only $1500 for the diamond ring, but June took the cash quick, not bothering to haggle for more money.

The site was not able to confirm which ring it was; however, it may have been the diamond ring Geno gave her during a 2019 episode of ‘Mama June: From Not to Hot.’

“I mean, did y’all really expect me to be over here making sound financial decisions?”

This is, of course, not the first time June has sold something of value for way less than it’s worth. In October, June sold her Georgia home for only $100,000 in cash—$56,000 less than she paid for it in 2014. She and Geno also sold nearly all of their possessions (via Facebook Marketplace, as you do) before hitting the road. They’ve been staying at various casinos and hotels across Georgia, leaving a path of destruction in their wake. 

Earlier this month, June and Geno were reportedly unable to come up with the $2000 they owed to a Georgia hotel for their stay.

  1. This story gets worse each time. I am afraid this isn’t going to end well if something doesn’t happen I’m afraid she will end up dead. I hope not. My heart n prayers go out to her kids.

  2. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
    This is beyond sad. When drugs take hold, the addict no longer has control, they no longer have the ability to “reason” or make sound decisions. June needs help, but until she gets to a place that she actually wants help, nothing will change. In the interim, I hope that her children figure out a way to continue on, and survive. I also hope thru all their disappointment and frustrations that they know their mom does love them, but she’s ill and incapable of owning up to her responsibilities.

  3. I doubt she is wondering what the heck happened. I doubt she is capable of thinking at all these days. From Here comes Honey Boo Boo to from Not to Hot and on to From Hot to Pot.

  4. Who is Kail and why do I care if she is pregnant? Picked up Chris where,for what and who is picking him/her up? Everybody knows Janelle and David are together, nobody knows why and nobody really cares. Now I get it Kail is broke and pregnant and Chris is whooping her arse for being broke, pregnant or both.

    We sincerely apologise for using your personal internet space to report on something so unrelated to your interest. I am sure every effort will be made not not to repeat that mistake again. And I sincerely appreciate you keeping me up to date on whoever these people are. Next time I see an article on them I will be sure to click and read, and then again, maybe I won’t.

  5. This is sad as hell. June is going to end up alone, living in her car, and wondering what the hell happened.

  6. And you KNOW that $1500 was gone in a day, on a cheap hotel room and crack. Geno has really been her downfall! She’d still be trash if she hadn’t met him, but she wouldn’t be strung out on crack, pawning her last valuables for crack money, while her older daughter is raising Alanna.

  7. Imagine raking in millions and millions of dollars, and a couple years later having nothing left? Don’t do drugs, kids. What a waste. That was life-changing money and it’s just gone.

  8. Old story. Is Kail pregnant? Have they picked up Chris? Is Jenelle really with DAVID? Is Kail broke? Did Chris beat her azz? No good stories on this site.

    1. If you don’t think the site has good stories, don’t be on it. The Ashley can’t just post stories she doesn’t have a 100% confirmed, which makes this site the best. She won’t post for the sake of posting until she can confirm it’s true.

    1. She’s probably there already. She sold the ring a week ago, they done smoked that money up the day they got it.

  9. June is not going to learn her lesson until she ends up homeless and alone. As long as she has anything of value to hawk, Geno will stick to her like a fly to fly paper. It is a shame she can’t see any of that right now. She is such a needy person that she chose this good for nothing drug addict over her girls. I really hope the girls go on without her and don’t expect her to change because they will only be disappointed. June has shown time after time that she would rather choose a man over her own kids. That way of thinking can only end badly.
